A Little Bit Of Hope

 

Waiting for him was the hardest experience I have ever had to go through. He told me to go but how could I leave him? My stomach turned as I quietly watched from the autumn brown leaves 'If he is still alive...' ; I quickly remove that thought from my mind. How will I find him?. He protected us. I know that he done this from the goodness of his heart but I can't go through this without him. 

As I begin to walk through the forest I see a tall, shadowed figure. My heart begins to race and I feel anxiety moving across my body. Reality hiy=ts me and I remember why he told me to leave; to protect our baby. If I don't run now me and the baby will die. Suddenly, I hear a voice calling me "Mae! Mae! Where are you?!" I Know that voice, it's him! He's escaped. That tall, shadowed figure becomes more clear and I see that it is my husband. As he runs towards me the feeling of fear rushes through me. I feel a stream of water run down my legs. Then everything goes black...

'Am I dead?' I ask outloud. I hear a familiar voice; I must be dead now. Musn't I? But my vision soon becomes clear and I shriek in pain! 'No.No.No." I hear him cry out. "It's too early"He says with tears streaming down his face. I soon come back to reality and realise what is going on. I've gone into early labour. Fear moves through the air like fire moving through a forest. This pain of electricity goes through my stomach. I see him reach for his pocket knife from his ripped, skinny jeans. 'My bad boy husband' I smirk at that thought. He glances over at me and all I see in his dark brown eyes are fear and compassion. "Stay with me ok?" I nodd as I know what is about to take place. I can't leave him now but I know how much he loves me and our child. I tell myself; 'if I can't hold on for me then hold on for the baby.'

A sharp object splits open my pregnant stomach and with a small cry out in pain, a joyful, little cry echoes throught the forest. "It's a girl. It's our girl." His eyes light up like twinkling stars in the dark night sky. He passes her over to me. "Hope. I want to name her Hope. She is our hope for the future." He smiles. As our future finally seems more clear I feel a sudden pressure push across my chest. I know what's happening. Their future will be safe.

I pass Hope back to him. He looks down at her and I smile. A bright light takes me away and that is the last thing I saw. There is no fear now. Only joy, happiness and peace. However, every now and again I go to visit my child and the love of my life as I am always busy watching over them, watching what mischief they get into.
